Calendar of Patent Rolls, 45 Elizabeth I (1602-1603), C 66/1596-1606, with an appendix of Dispensation Rolls (1594-1598, 1601-1603), C58/1-6
The patent rolls were the government's central registry where grants of land or other gifts, the appointments of officials, pardons, leases and such matters as patents establishing boroughs, markets or schools may be found. These volumes need to be secured by all libraries holding the printed Calendar of Patent Rolls. Access to these calendars is facilitated by the provision of indexes to persons, places and subjects. This volume differs from the others in that it also contains the Dispensation Rolls for six years: all the previously unpublished dispensation rolls dating from before 1 James. The last patent roll for the reign, C 58/1606, contains patents from the late 1570s onwards that were apparently unenrolled when the series for the reign was finalised. The indices are included in the single volume.
